[wpkg-users] Need help having WPKG set filesystem permissions before and after running script

 	I am using WPKG for the first time.  I have WPKG and wpkgexpress 
running on XMPP on a Windows XP workstation in a Windows domain 

 	I have been updating my company's .NET application with a script 
that runs cwrsync on the Program Files directory on the user's 
workstations, but I've been getting in to some trouble because cwrsync 
leaves the ownership and permissions of the files different than it finds 
them.  I was hoping to use WPKG to first set ownership and permissions on 
the program's Program Files directory, perform the cwrsync script, then 
set the ownership and permissions again on the Program Files directory. 
I'm not readily seeing a package example for changing filesystem 
permissions--does anyone know the best way to perform these tasks?

 	I chose rsync as the update model because the program doesn't have 
to be reinstalled with each update, and I thought it would minimize 
bandwidth usage (the rsync server is centralized and there are many 
disparate networks).

Thanks for your help,


Todd Blum
